    You might want to let the "license holder" know K231CN is not even remotely compliant with FCC rules.

    But thanks for clearing one thing up - you are "renting" the translator from Centro Cristiano. That being the case, it absolutely cannot have KFNC as its parent station as the transmitter site for K231CN is physically located outside the 60 dBu F(50,50) contour of KFNC. A commercial fill-in translator is not allowed to extend the 60 dBu contour of the parent station.

    The only way that arrangement could possibly work is if there is absolutely no consideration - financial or otherwise - going to Centro from Gow, and if KFNC is being picked up over the air for rebroadcast on K231CN.

    Given that KFNC-HD2 hasn't even been on the air for the entire existence of the SportsMap 94.1 format, over the air delivery is clearly not how the translator is being fed.

    The only way to make the translator's operation legal would be to rent an HD channel from another operator in town whose signal fully encompasses 94.1's signal. Given that iHeart has a competing sports station of its own on KODA-HD2, I think it's fairly unlikely that they would be interested in renting to you guys, but who knows.
    Thanks for the info

    Well, looks like y'all took his advice.

    99.1 HD3 is now broadcasting SportsMap 94.1. Very odd since just one channel down (99.1 HD2), you can hear KBME 790. iHeart must be either hurting for money or they don't find SportsMap as a real threat. Either way, HD Radio must still be pretty irrelevant under the eyes of iHeart.

    Just a shot in the dark, but maybe iHeart's contract with Centro for the HD3 channel doesn't specify what can actually be broadcast on it.

    Of course, this development begs the question, is there another Centro translator without a parent station now, or did they lease another HD channel to feed whatever 99.1 HD3 was feeding?

    Any word on KBME acquiring a translator?

    How about 1180? Should they get a FM TRANSLATOR?

    Meanwhile, the latest numbers are now out: https://ratings.radio-online.com/cgi-bin/rol.exe/arb033

    Nothing really notable, other that the diminished numbers on the SportsTalkers. But they are probably doing fine in the male 25-54 demos.

    KROI still at 0.9, with less than half the overall numbers of the next higher station on the list (KTHT) which has a 2.0. Strange to see no stations in the ones. Urban One needs to make some readily apparent adjustments to 92.1, perhaps including rebranding/reimaging. Otherwise spin the format wheel again or sell it off.

    The last filing window for AM to get FM translators has passed...you can go to fccdata.org and search local freqs and the AM list shows who has filed in ( )

    Yeah that rim shot (KROI) will never do well no matter what’s on it. Time has proved that.

    KROI needs to make a lot of improvements... sounds like a crappy CHR in a small market that doesn't know whether it's rhythmic or mainstream, complete with what seems to be some whiny 16 year old voiceover "talent".

    The female imaging voice on KROI is beyond awful, easily one of the most annoying things I've ever heard on the radio. And you are right about the confused playlist; if they are to remain CHR they should probably go more mainstream, as there is already plenty of Rhythmic/Rap/Hip-Hop in the market on better signals. Rebranding wouldn't hurt.

    However I think Urban One may simply be out of ideas on what to do with the frequency, which is why I am rooting for a sale. New ownership would probably have much better ideas. The signal will never be a market leader, but it has the capability of doing better than it has in recent years. Note that the Praise 92.1 format often scored in the low three's, although the audience was too old.

    If EMF was to bring their L-Love format to Houston, 92.1 would be the place to do it. Same for WAY-FM or another national religious broadcaster.
